I named myself The Crafting Professor, since I'm a crafter, and I'm a college professor. I went through many, many years of graduate school, and the best source of relaxation and stress relief was being in my craft room or going to a local crop. Back then, I never told anyone that I was a full-time graduate student. I was waiting for the day I would scrapbook my graduation page. Now, I run the ScrapbookerPhD challenge blog (http://scrapbookerphd.blogspot.com), and am bringing my passion for crafting and teaching together. But here, at The Crafting Professor, I'm just sharing my work with like-minded crafters from all over the world.

Faraway Friends

I am so excited to share this project with you. Have you met crafting friends through your blogs and challenges and online communities? I have, and many of my new friends live all over the world. I made this card with specific new friends in mind. Obviously, they live in Australia. I met many of these talented ladies while taking classes through Kit and Clowder

To create this card, I started with the map of Australia. It is cut from the Australia bundle in my Cricut Design Space. I inked the edges with a distressed blue so that the white wasn't too sharp. The camera is a stamp from the set Framed by The Alley Way Stamps. I used my Copics to color the camera and picked up the blue from the map. It is also inked around the edge. The sentiment is from the Capture the Good Times stamp set from Craftin' Desert Divas. 

Challenges Entered:
Left of Center: Use your Dies
Sister Act Challenge: AG
